war. you don't see france going to war with germany or russia with poland. it used to happen all the time, but it's not happening. the best example of all was just a couple of weeks ago when gaza was fighting -- the palestinians were fighting with the israelis, and they lobbed a couple of missiles into tel aviv. i'm sure that both people on both sides could see that the day was coming that they'd be lobbing missiles into jerusalem. and this is what both the christian the jewish religion began there, and it's the holy land. it's some of the greatest tourist attractions in the world. people want to come from all overed world to see it, but not when a war is going on. they realized within a week of war they had made a terrible mistake to go to war. even though it's better to grumble at each other, but not to be shooting at each other and causing damage and wrecking the economy and upsetting people all over the world because these pictures, you have the bbc and cnn there having the pictures of the grandmothers and grandfathers and little children lined up on the street in front of ho
and france have already put out staunch statements aimed at the israelis. the israelis are saying, yes, all these countries have voiced their concern. they're not saying that any of them have ever talked about recalling their ambassadors or anything of the like, but it's certainly the case that this area, this e1 area has for a very, vg very long time been controversial. yes, the israelis for a while gave some assurance that is there would be no construction there, but that ran out quite a while ago, and there are also israeli officials who are saying that in light of the vote at the united nations where the palestinians managed to get that upgraded status, that all of those assurances are null and void, michael. >> all of this pressure that's being put on. israel has been good at ignoring outside pressure on anything. i'm curious about the palestinian side. that u.n. status upgrade does, of course, given the palestinians potential access to a whole raft of u.n. bodies, including the international criminal court. what are the palestinians saying about their options going forward? >> well, t
to this government in exile, if you will, as being recognized by france, the uk, turkey, gulf cooperation council countries and now the united states. >> this is going to complicate things, because now at the same time we have this state department saying that a small portion of the rebels are terrorists. they are al qaeda. how does that complicate the situation? the u.s. is trying to support the rebels. the president says this is a legitimate organization, the government, and yet, you have terrorists inside on the ground as part of the rebel forces. >> these jihadi fighting forces are making the rebel advances by the way. when you hear them made in and around damascus and a big army base outside of aleppo overtaken by rebels, these are the fighting forces with training in iraq, the jihadis are foreigners. it's a small component but making advances. the head of the opposition group is criticizing the u.s. for designating this rebel group as a terrorist force perhaps he doesn't want to be seen as a puppet of the united states. by the way, the u.s. is now inviting the head of the opposition, the po

and i had a chance to spend a little time on one of those trips and she went to france, egypt and tunisia. and i accompanied her on the plane and watched what was going on. she was non-stop. she took that kind of aggressive, non-stop travel to a certain degree from her husband the former president bill clinton. i traveled with him all of the time and he was non-stop, as well. we used to do day trips to bosnia or kosovo or whatever, and hillary clinton was like that. she moved, she moved, she moved, and i suspect we'll see that from john kerry and he knows he has four years to do what he needs to do and he'll try to milk as much of that as he possibly can. there are so many international issues out there on the agenda. i was surprised, i have to say. i thought he would speak after the president nominated him and say a few words and for some reason they decided he would not speak at the roosevelt room. normally they do that, but for whatever reason he didn't. he likes to talk, we know that. >> he does like to talk, and we know as well, secretary clinton when she was the first la

. denmark tops the list. canada at 9. u.s. at 8. france at 7 and japan a measly 4. look at the top tax rates in these countries. americans pay 41.7% when you factor in federal, state and local taxes. dans are happy but pay more, 48%. why? in part because their taxes get them free health care and post secondary education. so, perhaps a more constructive conversation should center on how much we expect to benefit from government services, and how much we're willing to pay for those services. now, the negotiation between speaker boehner and president obama have given us a new term over which to obsess, chain cpi. it would change the way the federal government calculates inflation and those benefits that are tied to it. normally every year both wages and prices go up. the consumer price index or cpi measures how much prices go up by tracking a basket of goods that americans typically buy. this is used to calculate cost of living adjustments on social security. checks pay a little more each year as prices for what we need go up. one potential flaw in the system is that cpi assumes people don't ch

, but that all changed in august. the seven-time tour de france winner was stripped of his titles, lost his sponsorships, even left the board of his famous cancer charity live strong after the u.s. anti-doping agency found that he engaged in a long-term pattern of blood doping during his career. armstrong still denies using performance-enhancing drugs. >>> number seven, wrong side of the street. few things are more universal for american children than sesame street and elmo which makes the elmo sex scandal all the more shocking. kevin clash resigned as the iconic voice of elmo after allegations surfaced that years ago, had he sexual contact with underage males. the show says no one there knew anything about it. >>> number six, congress behaving badly. the whiff of scandal doesn't mean you can't win a race for congress. democratic congressman jesse jackson junior of illinois was re-elected even though he was absent for months due to mental health issues and underfederal investigation, for misusing congressional resources. weeks after the election, he resigned. during the campaign, allegation
